    Of all the things I expected when I woke up this morning, seeing Miley Cyrus, Maynard Keenan, and Moby featuring in the same album wasn't one of them. But then again, I wouldn't expect anything less strange of the Flaming Lips.

    Miley Cyrus singing 2 classic beatles songs, lucy in the sky with diamonds and a day in the life... Oh what a great idea that is.

    that is such old news- people have known she was on those songs for like a year now- as a big fan of the beatles and the lips, I no longer care about miley being involved because **** it. I for one am really excited to hear my favorite songs from this album, "getting better", be done by another one of my favorite bands- Dr. Dog. That will be so very dope

    The Flaming Lips are awesome. I'd love a new album of original music but their covers are almost always great.

    Man, I wish they would stop doing all this cover/collaboration bullshit and just make a new album of originals. Miley Cyrus? C'mon guys you have to do better than oh shit Maynard's guesting this is gonna be great.

    Why should I worry about Miley Cyrus singing a couple of Beatles tunes? J Mascis is going to play on the album. That's all, shut up and take my money.

    Maynard Keenan, Miley Cyrus, Moby, and the Flaming Lips doing a Sgt. Pepper's cover album. Jesus Christ.

    They played this at the Portland Waterfront show, it wasn't that great there, but it sounds ****ing terrible here.

    I honestly feel like Miley did a decent job on the vocals. It's just... the production and style of the song that really don't work.
